Walgreens Ad & Preview

Now viewing: Walgreens Weekly Ad (Jul 21 - Jul 27, 2024)

What is the Walgreens Weekly Ad?

The Walgreens weekly ad is a page on the Walgreens website where avid customers can find great promo offers like buy one get one (BOGO), discounts, store rewards, and other deals. 

Typically, the promos are active for six days only. However, if indicated, it may last longer, even up to a month. 

Also, note that most – if not all – of the promos on the Walgreens ad require a myWalgreens account. Thus, make sure you have that. 

What Makes the Walgreens Weekly Ad Unique? 

The Walgreens weekly ad appears so different from many other store weekly ads. Thus, feeling slightly confused is alright if it’s your first time using it. We’ll help you out with that!

But first, here are some of the specific things that make this Walgreens sales ad different: 

1. Modern Interface 

Many weekly ads are designed for printing or PDF files, so they appear like a brochure, catalog, or some other printout. However, the weekly ad for Walgreens does not look like it could be an old-fashioned or traditional Walgreens flyer. 

Instead, it is a dynamic and interactive page on the Walgreens website, one you cannot print or save as a PDF. 

2. Needs a my Walgreens Account

Some weekly ads have promos that aren’t exclusive to loyalty program customers. However, for Walgreens, almost all deals require you to be part of their myWalgreens program. 

Thus, if you’re a frequent customer at the pharmacy chain and want to make the most of their deals, ensure you have a myWalgreens account. 

3. Some Promos May Exceed One Week 

It is indicated on the page that the weekly ad is good for six days only (e.g., August 6, 2023, to August 12, 2023). However, some of their promos, especially their BOGO deals, aren’t just good for one week. Some of them are valid for two weeks or so. 

Thus, make sure to check the expiration date of each offer you check out. That way, you’d know when exactly you should buy it. 

4. One Deal, Multiple Products 

If you check out the Deals of the Week section of the weekly ad, you’ll see a collage of products and their respective promos reminiscent of a traditional weekly ad. 

However, once you click the Shop Products button, you’ll realize that even in this aspect, Walgreens is still unique. Instead of each deal applying to a particular product only, it is valid for several products, usually of the same brand. 

5. Rain Checks for Georgia, Michigan, and Connecticut

Rain checks refer to when customers are allowed to buy an out-of-stock product at a later but still at promo price. For instance, if the deodorant is 2 for $13 this week and is out-of-stock, you can buy it for the same price next week. 

According to the ad, rain checks for the Walgreens deals this week are allowed only for Georgia, Michigan, and Connecticut. Moreover, those are subject to the following conditions:

  • In-store purchases only
  • Valid for 60 days only 
  • Employees may authorize for the product on sale to be substituted by a similar item of the same brand   

How to Use the Walgreens Weekly Ad

Follow these steps to find the Walgreens sales this week using the weekly ad:

  1. Open the Walgreens website. 
  2. Click on Menu to reveal a dropdown Menu.
  3. Select Weekly Ad. 
  4. Make sure the selected store — which is on the top left – is correct. If it isn’t, click on it to change the location and choose another store. 
  5. Scroll up and down the page to see the various promos and offers. 
  6. If there are deals you are interested in, click on the “Shop Now” or “Shop products” buttons. 
  7. You may Add to Cart certain items. However, you’ll immediately be asked if the product is for pickup, same-day delivery, or shipping.  
  8. For coupons, you can click on the “+” or plus sign to clip them. However, you must already have an account with Walgreens to do so successfully. 

How to Save While Shopping at Walgreens

Taking advantage of the weekly ad deals and sales is a great way to save money. However, here are other tips you can follow to save even more:

1. Get a myWalgreens Account 

myWalgreens is a program that aims to improve the shopping experience at Walgreen. Members get to enjoy all the deals in the weekly ad. Aside from the weekly promos, they get other perks like:

  • Cash rewards earned from purchases 
  • Readily available pickup or delivery options 
  • Personalized deals and recommendations
  • Paperless digital receipts 
  • Access to myWalgreens credit card 

Also, all those come for free! There is no registration or annual fee to be part of myWalgreens. You only have to be a US resident aged 16 and above, although those of younger ages may have to get permission from parents or guardians first. 

2. Consider Getting a myWalgreens Credit Card 

As mentioned, myWalgreens members may apply for the program’s credit card. You can earn more rewards if you use the card to shop at Walgreens or buy Walgreens products. 

For instance, instead of just 1% cash rewards for shopping at Walgreens, credit card users receive 5% cash rewards. If you buy Walgreens branded products, members get 10% cash rewards, while credit card users get 10%. 

Also, credit card users can earn points even if they buy Walgreens branded products outside of the pharmacy. This is not possible for program members. 

3. Clip and Use Coupons

Walgreens has many coupons customers can use. Indeed, even if you just visit the website, you may find one or two advertised on the topmost banner. 

You can find most of the Walgreens coupons on their Coupons page. Make sure to clip the ones you like and use them before expiration. 

Also, be sure to check out the details before using a coupon. Some offers are valid for both in-store and online orders, while a few are for online or in-store only. The details pop-up also contains terms and conditions, which you must follow for the coupon to be applied. 

4. Check out the Monthly Deal Alert!

There is no Walgreens monthly ad. There is, however, a Monthly Deal Alert! It compiles some hot promos and coupons for the month. 

Note, though, that the availability of products may vary depending on the platform and location. It may be indicated on the product itself if there is no stock for a specific purchase option (e.g., no stock for shipping).
